Step 2: Create a starry backdrop for the rocket ship.

Here, we’ve used one of our favourite techniques – Splat Painting!

Splat painting doesn’t have to be messy, it can be controlled by brushing a flat edged object (like a glue stick or blunt plastic knife) against a paint filled brush.

Keep the brush low and gently scrape the flat edged object against the brush in an upwards motion, this will ensure the splats spread across the paper.

Step 3: Continue splatter painting until your Arty Crafty Kids are satisfied with their starry backdrop.

Try adding a second, third or even fourth colour to create a galaxy effect.

Set the painting aside and leave it to dry.

Step 4: The template includes shapes with dotted lines. As an extension to the activity, ask your Arty Crafty Kids to join the dots and then identify and count the shapes.

Before moving onto the next step, Arty Crafty Kids are presented with two options:

  1. Join the dots and simply colour in shapes.
  2. Cut out and trace the shapes onto coloured paper.

Step 5: Cut out the individual shapes.

Step 5: If your Arty Crafty Kids decided to proceed with option 2, trace around the shapes with a pencil. Alternatively, move forward a step and begin assembling the rocket ship!

Step 6: Using the starry backdrop, begin assembling the rocket ship and secure the shapes with a glue stick.

Optional Extra – Add a few paper flames with any left over scrap paper.

Step 1: Download and print the Christmas Tree template onto white cardstock!

Arty Crafty Kids | Fingerprint Christmas Tree Art - A sweet keepsake for Christmas. Kids can apply their fingerprints to the Christmas Tree Printable to form a beautiful tree with a personal touch #christmas #christmascraft #kidscrafts #kidsart #printables #templates #paper #papercrafts

Step 2: Apply paint to your Arty Crafty Kids fingertip(s) with a brush and print along each line of the tree.

To create a layered effect with the prints, start from the bottom and work up.

Arty Crafty Kids | Fingerprint Christmas Tree Art - A sweet keepsake for Christmas. Kids can apply their fingerprints to the Christmas Tree Printable to form a beautiful tree with a personal touch #christmas #christmascraft #kidscrafts #kidsart #printables #templates #paper #papercrafts

Step 3: Continue working along the tree.

Avoid applying a fresh coat of paint for every print and use the same application until the prints fade. This will add texture and body to the completed piece, with some prints clearer and bolder than others.

Step 4: Fill the Christmas Tree with and finish with a single fingerprint at the top.

Step 5: Using a variety of bold colours, tip a clean fingertip directly into the paint and again print, this time in a random formation across the tree. 

These bright colours will become a chain of pretty baubles (or lights depending on your Arty Crafty Kids perspective!).

Step 6: While the paint dries, paint the the Christmas Tree pot!

To add additional texture, fill the brim of the pot with balls of tissue paper. The motion of tearing, scrunching, rolling and sticking is a great exercise for developing fine motor skills.

Step 7: Once the paint has thoroughly dried connect the baubles with a squiggly trail of black pen. 

I would recommend starting from the top of the tree and working down.

Step 8: Older children may enjoy challenging themselves to connecting the baubles in diagonal lines.

Step 9: Continue with the squiggly lines until all the baubles are joined.

They do not have to be connected by the same squiggly line, they also can be separated.

Step 2: Cut out the ornament silhouettes and position on to the black cardstock.

The templates have been designed to encourage Arty Crafty Kids to practice their cutting skills. The smooth lines and simple shapes are perfect for little hands to navigate around and allow for little mishaps that may occur.

Allow enough space between the silhouettes for the ribbon to descend from the top of the page to join each shape.

Step 3: Apply white paint (ideally acrylic) to the sponge and begin gently dabbing the paint around the silhouette outline.

With each silhouette, start with white. This not only creates a bold and striking contrast against the black, but it also acts as a good base layer for other colours.

Arty Crafty Kids - Christmas Ornament Art for Kids. A fun and easy Christmas activity for kids, that plays with negative space to create gorgeous Christmas Ornament Silhouettes. #christmas #christmascrafts #kidscrafts

Step 4: Add a second colour.

As per the previous step, follow the outline of the silhouette and extend further into the black space.

Arty Crafty Kids - Christmas Ornament Art for Kids. A fun and easy Christmas activity for kids, that plays with negative space to create gorgeous Christmas Ornament Silhouettes. #christmas #christmascrafts #kidscrafts Step 5: Continue to add additional colours.

Your Arty Crafty Kids may begin to notice that some colours will change as they layer and blend. This is a great opportunity to talk about colour mixing, inviting the kids to describe the changes they observe.

Step 6: Once your Arty Crafty Kids are happy with their painting, gently peel the shapes away to reveal the silhouette.

Step 7: As you can see, we’ve used the negative space as an extension to our shape.

The yellow creates an illusion of a twinkling star and this effect can be achieved with each of our templates.

The baubles are surrounded by pinks and blues to suggest a reflection of colours.

Step 8: Once the paint has dried, add a vertical line of PVA  glue from the bauble to the top of the page.

Add a strand of ribbon.

Step 9: Create a small bow out of ribbon and attach this to the join between the bauble and ribbon strand.

This is Christmas Ornament Art for Kids uses a fun and abstract technique, that’s perfect for colour play.

With the ease of ready-mixed paint, it’s tempting to offer the full spectrum of ready-made colours, however, this denies kids the opportunity to experiment, play and ultimately learn through the process of trial and error.

For this reason, our Arty Crafty Boxes and many of our projects focus on primary colours, with the addition of white and black.

This is to encourage Arty Crafty Kids to explore and develop their colour mixing skills.

And it’s always fun to challenge them to make as many colours as possible, as well as asking simple questions throughout the process:

  • How much yellow and red do you need to make orange?
  • How many shades of blue can you make?
  • What happens when you mix all the colours together?

Step 2: To create a spooky ambience, this project explores and plays with twilight tones and hues; these include red, violet, blue, aqua green, yellow, orange and black.

Your Arty Crafty Kids can start from any point, however, I would recommend starting from the central circle with a warm colour and progressing to outer circles with cooler shades of blues and violet.

Step 3: Starting with a bright and solid yellow shade, add a small amount of red to yellow to create a lighter shade of orange.

Increase the mix of red to yellow to darken the orange.

Step 4: From orange, introduce a light pink shade and graduate to a solid dark red.

Throughout the project encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to mix their own colours and engage in a process of trial and error to create their desired shades.

Discussion Points: 

  • How do you make the colour lighter or darker?
  • How many shades of orange or red can you create?
  • Can you make the same colour twice?

Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

The artist Wassily Kandinsky is a favourite here at Arty Crafty Kids and today I have the pleasure of publishing the third instalment to our growing collection of Kandinsky Inspired Art Projects – ‘Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art’ .

Farbstudie Quadrate (squares with concentric circles) is one of Kandinsky’s most recognisable pieces and was created as a personal colour chart. Kandinsky believed you could express feelings through colours and shapes, and claimed to see lines and colours while listening to music. As such, he often painted to music; squares with concentric circles (and much of his work) is a reflection of that process.

To get your Arty Crafty Kids into the spirit of Kandinsky’s mindset, try playing music as they paint. Does this influence their painting or mood in any way?

Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art: Tutorial

Step1: Download our free Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Template and print on to white cardstock or mixed media paper (depends on your Arty Crafty Kids choice of medium). 

Choose a medium!

Watercolours work well with this project and is our choice of medium for this tutorial.

Oil pastels, colouring pencils and acrylic paint are all good options and depending on the age group of your Arty Crafty Kids, they may prefer to challenge their mixing and blending skills (oil pastels) or keep it simple (colouring pencils).

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

Step 2: Set an aim… 

To create a spooky ambience, this project explores and plays with twilight tones and hues; these include red, violet, blue, aqua green, yellow, orange and black.

Alternatively, Arty Crafty Kids may prefer to explore Autumn colours or experimenting with contrasting and complementary colours. It’s entirely up to them and it’s important to allow the kids to guide the project.

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

Step 3: Once your Arty Crafty Kids have an aim, let’s explore the colour palette!

If the aim is to create a spooky tree, ask them to think about the colours they associate with ‘Twilight’ or dusk and dawn.

Next, add colour. Using the circles as a guide, create a ring of one colour within the outline and then add a second ring and third with additional colours.

Continue until the circle is complete.

The colours can blend or remain solid and independent.

They can complement or contrast each other – the decision is your Arty Crafty Kids and there’s really no right or wrong

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

Step 4: Once the circle is complete, fill in the remaining white space with one bold colour and then move onto the next.

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

Step 5: Within each circle, encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to explore different colour combinations. 

How many different colour combinations can they make?

Arty Crafty Kids - Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art - A fun Halloween twist on a popular art project #halloweenart #artforkids

Step 6: Continue painting the circles within the grid until it’s full and bursting with colour!

I hope your Arty Crafty Kids have enjoyed creating their own Spooky Tree Kandinsky Inspired Circle Art.

Upon completion (and sometimes throughout the process – this will depend on your Arty Crafty Kids as it’s sometimes best not to disturb an artist in the zone!), it’s important to chat about the finished piece and the process.

Here are a few conversation starters and discussion points:

  • Tell me about your art.
  • How did you choose the colours?
  • How did you make that shade of …. ?
  • How would you describe the colours you have used?
  • What’s your favourite colour combination and why?

Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft

Arty Crafty Kids - Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft for kids. A sweet Autumn or Halloween craft that's great for developing fine motor skills! #pumpkin #preschool #preschoolcraft #easykidscraft #craftsforkids #finemotor

This Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft has been designed with preschoolers and very young children in mind. The process of tearing, scrunching, rolling and sticking is wonderful for fine motor skills (or dexterity).

Fine motor skills refer to the coordination of small muscles within the hands, wrists and fingers that are essential for picking objects up and writing.

Crafts that involve a simple and repetitive process, such as our cute little pumpkin craft, give those fine motor skills a fabulous workout.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft for kids. A sweet Autumn or Halloween craft that's great for developing fine motor skills! #pumpkin #preschool #preschoolcraft #easykidscraft #craftsforkids #finemotor

Step 1: Download the template from our members’ area or create your own.

Print the template on to good quality paper or white cardstock. Preschoolers are often generous with their glue application. Cardstock tends to be much better at absorbing the excess and prevents the craft turning into a soggy mess!

Begin tearing tissue paper and rolling/scrunching into balls.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft for kids. A sweet Autumn or Halloween craft that's great for developing fine motor skills! #pumpkin #preschool #preschoolcraft #easykidscraft #craftsforkids #finemotor

Step 2: Coat a section of the template in a thin layer of PVA glue (liquid form or glue stick) and stick the balls of tissue paper within the pumpkin template.

The size of the tissue paper balls is wholly dependent on your preschooler. They may like teeny tiny balls or big open scrunchy ones – both options are perfect!

Notice from the picture the use of the pincer grip. Without even thinking about it, your infants and preschoolers will be strengthening their little muscles and improving their coordination throughout the craft.

Step 3: Continue filling the pumpkin with tissue paper.

Encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to follow the lines of the pumpkin template and fill the white space by placing the tissue paper balls as closley together as possible.  This is great for hand-eye coordination!

Step 4: Keep going until the pumpkin is completely full!

OPTIONS: 

We love to give our Arty Crafty Kids choice and filling the pumpkin template with tissue paper is just one option!

Here are a few extra ideas: 

  • For older children, take the magazine challenge! This involves using the paper from one magazine and filling the template with torn paper. This adds texture to the finished piece and Arty Crafty Kids use their creativity repurposing prints and images to create art. Example: Butterfly Collage
  • Sticking to a collage theme, perhaps paint the pumpkin template in its appropriate colours first and ask your Arty Crafty Kids to find matching coloured items (buttons, sequins, tissue paper etc) to fill the pumpkin.

These ideas can be applied to many of the templates on offer within the Arty Crafty Kids members area and can be downloaded as many times as you like!

Step 4. Place the silhouette onto a piece of black cardstock.

Apply white paint (ideally acrylic) to the sponge and begin gently dabbing the paint around the silhouette outline.

With each silhouette, start with white. This not only creates a bold and striking contrast against the black, but it also acts as a good base layer for other colours.

Step 5: Add a second colour.

As per the previous step, follow the outline of the silhouette and extend further into the black space.

Step 6: Continue to add additional colours.

Your Arty Crafty Kids may begin to notice that some colours will change as they layer and blend. This is a great opportunity to talk about colour mixing, inviting the kids to describe the changes they observe.

Step 7: Once your Arty Crafty Kids are happy with their painting, gently peel the template away to reveal the silhouette.

Silhouette art is created by painting negative space. To explain this simply, negative space is the area that surrounds the subject or point of interest. 

In this instance, our point of interest is the ghost and haunted house.

It’s a fun and abstract technique, that’s perfect for colour play.

With the ease of ready-mixed paint, it’s tempting to offer the full spectrum of ready-made colours, however, this denies kids the opportunity to experiment, play and ultimately learn through the process of trial and error.

For this reason, our Arty Crafty Boxes and many of our projects focus on primary colours, with the addition of white and black.

This is to encourage Arty Crafty Kids to explore and develop their colour mixing skills.

And it’s always fun to challenge them to make as many colours as possible, as well as asking simple questions throughout the process:

  • How much yellow and red do you need to make orange?
  • How many shades of blue can you make?
  • What happens when you mix all the colours together?

Autumn Leaf Pop Art

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

The Pop Art movement began in the 1950s and refers to a simple style that is characterised by brightly painted commercial images, such as Andy Warhol’s soup cans and the Shot Marilyns.  It’s a fun colourful art form that’s perfect for children to explore!

Our  Autumn Leaf Pop Art project simplifies the style, encourages colour play and aims to create art that literally “POPS” from the page.

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

This project will introduce the concept of Complementary Colours – Colours that are directly opposite each other on the colour spectrum. When two complementary colours are mixed, they create brown.

https://www.artycraftykids.com/product/arty-crafty-kids-club/

Your Arty Crafty Kids may find it useful to refer to our colour chart. Simply choose a colour from the outer wheel and imagine a line travelling across the circle to the colour opposite. This will be that colours complementary partner.

Acrylic Paint

Step 1: Download and print the Leaf Art Grid template (The Sign-up form can be found towards the end of this post).

Using bright Autumn colours, paint the segments.

Try to alter the order of colours and shades throughout the grid. As you see from our example, we’ve used a small palette of colours with some segments complementing their neighbour, while others clash.

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

Step 2: Head outside and gather a collection of leaves.

If your Arty Crafty Kids intend to remain within the segments, then be mindful about leaf size.

That said, there are options! Your Arty Crafty Kids may prefer larger leaves that overlap across the page. Perhaps they could use just a single leaf and create one large print.

This post is designed as a demonstration for one technique, however, I’m sure your Arty Crafty Kids will have their own ideas and it’s important to run with that creativity.

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

Step 3: Let’s paint!

For best results, use acrylic paint and apply with a brush.

When it comes to printing, less is more and detail is easily lost in the excess paint. This will be a process of trial and error for your Arty Crafty Kids, but that’s part of the fun!

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

Step 4: With each leag, press the painted side down firmly onto the grid and gently move your finger across the leaf, pressing down around the edges.

Arty Crafty Kids - Autumn Leaf Pop Art project for kids, with a free template included! #autumncraft #kidsart #artforkids #kidsactivities #craftsforkids

Step 5: Peel the leaf away from the grid to reveal the print.

With each print, select a different complementary colour to make the leaf POP  from the page.

If your Arty Crafty Kids need assistance with their colour choices, refer to the colour wheel. They should also be encouraged to experiment for themselves.

My own daughter had her own ideas and prefered to use the same coloured print for every segment, which is equally as effective and a great learning exercise with respect to understanding how colours work together.

Step 6: Continue the process until the grid is full of leaf prints!

I hope you’re Arty Crafty Kids enjoy the process of creating their Autumn Leaf Pop Art!

These pieces look amazing framed and even better with multiple pop art projects using different leaf prints and colours. Can you imagine how an Autumn Leaf Pop Art display could look?

Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

To create our Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art, we followed the tips and tutorials within our good friend’s (Samantha Sarles from Color Made Happy) new book The Rock Art Handbook!

If you and your children love painting rocks, then this book is worth checking out. It’s jam-packed with easy to follow tutorials, inspiring ideas and the end results are beautiful.  Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art – Tutorial 

Step 1: Begin by thoroughly washing the rocks.

Allow the rocks to dry before progressing to the next stage.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

Step 2: Using white acrylic paint, create a smooth base layer.

Leave the paint to dry. Luckily, acrylic paint tends to dry quickly!

With a dry base layer, let’s add colour!

The Rock Art Handbook is full of fun and unique techniques for creating doodle backgrounds.

Here, we decided to experiment with ombre backgrounds.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

And watercolour paints.

Prior to reading the Rock Art Handbook, watercolour paint is not a medium I would have considered using for decorating rocks.

In this instance, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of application and the beautiful finish!

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

Step 3: It’s time to doodle!

Sketch a rough tree design on your painted rock.

Take care not to press too firmly – the lines should be barely visible and NOT the complete design.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkidsStep 4: Using a black Posca pen draw one continuous free-flowing line from the roots of your tree design to the beginning of your first branch.

The the first line is always the most difficult.

Don’t worry if the line doesn’t follow your pencil sketch, remember that’s just a guide. It’s important to relax and allow your hand to flow naturally with the grain of the rock.

Every line, intentional or not, has a purpose and will add to the finished piece.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

Step 5: From the trunk of your tree design, create some squiggly lines working their way towards the bottom of the rock. 

Allow the lines to spread, twist and curl, filling the space at the base of the rock.

Thicken some of the lines and expand with finer lines curling from the prominent dark lines.

Arty Crafty Kids - Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art - Rock Painting Ideas for Kids #rockpainting #rockart #kidsart #easyartforkids

Step 6: Once the roots are complete, repeat the same process to create branches.

By this time, your hand should feel quite relaxed, so try abandoning your pencil sketch and go with the flow, filling the empty space with curling, twisting branches.

Step 7: Add some detail!

This could take the form of leaves or simple dots in an alternative colour.

And at this point, you can decide when your Tree of Life Inspired Rock Art is complete!

Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art: Tutorial 

Arty Crafty Kids | Art for Kids | Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art for Kids, with 4 downloadable templates available #kidsart #leafart #autumncraft #printable

Step 1. Let’s make a Rainbow!

This is a great opportunity for Arty Crafty Kids to explore the magic and wonder of colour-mixing, and for this reason, I would always recommend that Arty Crafty Kids only paint with the primary colours with black and white.

https://www.artycraftykids.com/product/arty-crafty-kids-club/

With the ease of ready-mixed paint, it’s tempting to offer the full spectrum of ready-made colours, however, this sadly denies kids the opportunity to experiment, play and ultimately learn through the process of trial and error.

So, with access to the primary colours only, encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to make as many colours as possible!

Ask questions throughout the process:

  • How much yellow and red do you need to make orange?
  • How many shades of blue can you make?
  • What happens when you mix all the colours together?

 

Arty Crafty Kids | Art for Kids | Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art for Kids, with 4 downloadable templates available #kidsart #leafart #autumncraft #printable

Step 2. While the Rainbow Canvas dries,  cut out the leaf silhouettes of your Arty Crafty Kids chosen template(s).

Place the leaves on the canvas and experiment with their arrangement.

Step 3. Now it’s time to make a choice… 

Stick the leaf silhouettes directly on to the rainbow background or move onto  Step 4. to create inverted silhouettes. 

Alternatively, paint two rainbow canvas’ and do both options.

 

Arty Crafty Kids | Art for Kids | Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art for Kids, with 4 downloadable templates available #kidsart #leafart #autumncraft #printable

Step 4. To create inverted silhouettes, simply hold the unstuck leaf template with a finger or two and gently sponge paint around the shape with the other hand.

To contrast against the rainbow background, we’ve used black in our example piece.

For an alternative method, take a look at our Autumn Leaf Painting concept, where we’ve left the background white and added an assortment of colours instead of black.

 

Step 5. Continue sponge painting around each leaf. 

 

Arty Crafty Kids | Art for Kids | Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art for Kids, with 4 downloadable templates available #kidsart #leafart #autumncraft #printable

Step 6. And then gently peel the templates away to reveal the inverted leaf silhouettes.

Here, the Arty Crafty Kids are again presented with a choice; the piece could be left complete at this stage with more of the rainbow background revealed or, it could be filled in.

 

Arty Crafty Kids | Art for Kids | Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art for Kids, with 4 downloadable templates available #kidsart #leafart #autumncraft #printable

Step 7. To enhance the effect of the inverted silhouette, simply fill in the remaining space surrounding the leaves.  This remaining area is called negative space and simply put, it’s the area that surrounds the subject or point of interest. 

In this instance, it’s our leaf silhouettes.

The notion of positive and negative space is naturally explored in this project and one your Arty Crafty Kids will consider without knowing the official terminology or theory – they’ll be too busy doing!

And this concludes the Rainbow Silhouette Leaf Art project.

I would like to end with a thought from my eldest Arty Crafty Kid, Olivia (8):

I really like this project. It lets children use their imaginations and play with rainbow colours.
I love the idea of rainbow leaves, it makes me think of a magical fairy world. A little glitter would really finish off the project!
